So, here is a story idea. It shocks me that nobody has picked up on this.
The IR announces, via their AP feed, that Northwest Energy has been approved in their request to increase gas prices 14%.
The IR also reported here, although the link doesn’t work anymore (I read the IR via their RSS feed which sometimes works, other times not), this information that natural gas prices are dropping due to mild winters in the mid-west.
I know I am not a professional journalist and such, but wouldn’t a good question be: “Hey, Northwest Energy, what the heck?” Or perhaps, “In the interest of consumers, why don’t you go BACK to the PSC and ask to rescind the rate increase?”
